CASE STUDIES

OUR
DESIGN
PHILOSOPHY

Our in-house design team comprises of more than two dozen of talented pool of engineers including solar, module, geotechnical, structural, EHV system and CMS experts. Our impeccable design philosophy ensures that we keep ourselves abreast with the latest trends in technology in all aspects of engineering, whether it is component or analysis tools, to help select the most optimal components and systems for our projects. Further, the complete engineering design process is driven through SOPs...

At the core of our philosophy lies:

  •  A meticulous selection of land is done through an extensive study
  •  Assessment of evacuation is deliberated through load flow studies as well as physical assessment of remote substations, right of way, etc
  •  Land boundary finalisation is done by qualified surveyors and latest tools such as DGPS (differential GPS)
  •  Plant topography is done by a drone-based system
  •  Geotechnical engineering is conducted by a qualified agency
  •  Critical due diligence in module selection including its quality process, inspections, in process quality control, internal quality control, etc
  •  High quality equipment and vendor selection
  •  Tendering and detailed engineering in-house for preparation, development and review of all engineering drawings, calculations, etc

ENGINEERING
PRACTICES

Best engineering practice standards followed by our project team ensures:

  •  Due diligence (DD) across stages of project development
    •  Product and vendor credentials assessment
    •  Guaranteed parameters
    •  Equipment MTTR (mean time to repair)
    •  MTBF (mean time between failure)
    •  Type tests report
  •  We associate with ONLY reputed vendors and EPC contractors
  •  Vendors are selected based on the finalised design concepts and subsequent execution

CENTRAL
MONITORING
SYSTEM

A state-of-the-art central monitoring system aces our performance management capabilities as:

  •  The projects can be tracked in real time
  •  Intricate details such as the wind speed, the reactive power, nacelle direction, pitch rotation etc can be monitored
  •  Power generation prediction as well as analysis can be done
  •  It facilitates system analysis and inventory control

In our journey from an Independent Power Producer in renewable energy to becoming a cleantech entity, we have invested extensively on research and adapted to the latest cutting-edge innovations. We are continually exploring possibilities across:
Hybrid of solar, wind, and energy storage
Floating Photovoltaics
Drone based diagnostic tools for site development, planning & construction as well as maintenance inspections ...

Use of AI for real time monitoring and output optimisation
Smarter solar cleaning cycle assessment device design
Agri-Voltaics which co-develop the same area of land for both solar photovoltaic power as well as for agriculture
Innovative piling techniques for offshore wind turbines
Design developments for solar tree and solar artefacts
Designed cable trays, walk-ways, ballasts in Rooftop projects
Non-penetrating type solutions on industrial sheds

AWARDS

HEALTH
SAFETY AND
ENVIRONMENT

Being a responsible and dynamic entity, Hero Future Energies (HFE) has a structured Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) policy explicitly for employees at project sites as well as corporate offices. We have incorporated the latest national and international statutory as well as regulatory requirements in our well defined “HSE Way” - an internal safety guide to approach all kinds of business operation. We ensure commitment and compliance of OH&S policy at three identified levels of the supply chain i.e. principal contractor, subcontractor and visitor.

Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) tool is used to assess which hazard poses the greatest risk in terms of likelihood of their occurrence and their potential impact, across our project sites. All significant risks are then addressed through operational control procedure & management programs. The effectiveness of control measures are monitored through periodic audits. In case of disparities we have a grievance redressal policy that promotes healthy employee worker relationship by providing a predictable, transparent, and credible process to all stakeholders. Under the guidance of our investor, International Finance Corporation, India (an arm of the World Bank Group) and in consultation with a third party, we have developed an Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) for our wind/solar sites.
